NetApp FAS6200 software lets you build flexible, efficient unified storage today as a foundation for future-ready IT.
The scalable, unified software of NetApp® data storage systems provides a common software environment for both NAS and SAN on all NetApp FAS and V-Series systems.
With NetApp software on the FAS6200, you can:
- Backup terabytes of application data in seconds and recover in minutes
- Reduce disk purchases by 50% or more through superior storage efficiency
- Manage two to three times more storage per administrator
- Reduce provisioning time by up to 90%
- Cut test and development time in half
Included standard with every FAS6200 series system is Data ONTAP® Essentials, a set of powerful NetApp software products that delivers enterprise-class availability, secure multi-tenancy, high performance, superior storage efficiency, and select OnCommand™ data management software. In addition, optional Extended-Value Software products provide advanced capabilities, such as instant data recovery, instant cloning, data replication, disk-to-disk backup and application-aware backup and recovery.
